campaign is running on a simple principle, keep our communities safe, back our men and women in blue and make crime illegal again, these are common sense things. my 8-year-old son can distill it down to one sentence, we watching news the other day he turns to me and says if they could've police who is going to keep us safe. i love it when a child shows more intellectual maturity than the seattle city council and that is what is happening here. >> seattle mayor jenny durgin probably have the quote of the year last year during the chop zone near where she had this to say about it. >> we got four blocks in seattle you just saw pictures of that is more like a block party atmosphere. >> how long will it look like this? >> we could have a summer of love. >> fast forward to 2021, not the summer of love, shootings up by 41%. i don't want to believe in the

into occupied police cars and yet there is no leadership, the mayor never once stood up for our men and women in blue and that is not okay and that's not just our mayor, we are seeing that from far left leaders in this country, they are not taking the stance to protect those folks putting their lives in the line for us every single day. todd: how you reverse this trend? >> it is leadership, we need to step up, say vocally and loudly we've got your back. we also need to enforce the law, not to harbor point but make crime illegal again, we are not prosecuting crime because not only does the far left not want to prosecute crime, once the crime is prosecuted they use every excuse possible to let those who have been prosecuted out of jail.

biden administration has done nothing to stop it, they know it is not popular so they have to have it happened under the radar so when things go wrong at the shelters that are completely overwhelmed with the number of kids and families that have arrived they've got to suppress it, they can't take the scrutiny or the criticism, they don't want people to know what is happening so the reaction is to keep people from finding out what has happened. >> how did they not see this coming? we knew we would get the vaccine in the united states before other countries, we knew other countries were not going to have high vaccination rates, then the individuals are poor and trying to seek asylum and not getting access to the vaccine. how did this not calculate in the mind of the white house? >> they did know about it, they had 200 briefings from border and customs officials before they took office, they knew that if they relax the policies at
the border that migrants around the world will respond to this invitation as they call it. they thought they could manage it, they thought they could keep people from finding out about it, they knew they could count on their allies in the news media to look the other way and thought they could get away with it but this is concerning because we are talking about kids and public health and the larger american population and it is a combination of incompetence and being overwhelmed in this situation but they could do something about it, they know what it takes to secure the border, they just don't want to do it. todd: texas, greg abbott restricting as police learn covid positive illegal immigrants were sent to hotels following this whataburger
encounter. the officer approached the family at this restaurant, they had been apprehended by border patrol days prior and they were sick with covid. they were released because they were sick with covid. why would they do that? >> because they don't know what else to do. they don't have capacity to hold everyone in custody and quarantine them as would be the appropriate health response. they are listening to the open borders advocates for these migrants who say you have to release people as quickly as possible to let them apply for asylum which most of them never do. in june alone there were 75,000
illegal migrants released all over the country and most will never apply for asylum or hearings or anything like that. the burden is falling on local communities that have to accommodate them and taxpayers are picking up the pieces of this policy. >> where is the concern for people at the restaurant like whataburger, appreciate your time. >> senator ted cruz something the panel of doj officials and others when he asked this question about china. >> do you have an answer as to why the administration has not sanctioned china for repeated cyberattacks over and over again against the united states? i think that is a question the administration should answer.
